Is anyone else obesessed with angling? Or more specific, fly-fishing. I live in the Pacific Northwest and the fishin' here is top-notch. Salmon, Steelhead, Halibut, Walleye, the list goes on. You havn't truly lived until youve brought a 400# sturgeon up from the bottom of the Columbia River. ( The Washington State record for White Sturgeon is 1800#!!! 20 feet in length! No BS!) These fish are commonly caught in the 8-12 foot range. Excellent Smoked. Good times. That my friends makes for an awesome weekend. You sure as hell can't catch fish while you're out knockin' on peoples' doors and ruining their weekends. TAKE A KID FISHING.
You're right, fishing is alot of fun I haven't ever caught a fish that big. (I've caught some really big muskies, though.) A 20 fot fish is huge!!! My Grandpa has a gigantic swordfish mounted on his wall that he caught...I think it would be fun to catch a fish that big but I don't think I could mount it on my wall, I'd feel too bad for it.
